Christmas end of term shows appear to have been mainly the productions of plays in the years prior to 2000. 1965 was an exception, when what looks to be a satirical revue was mounted. There don't appear to be any photos of the performance, but a cast list did appear in the Maltonian magazine (issue number 121).

A small fragment of a poster - or possibly the whole poster - was passed on to me by Rosy Taylor in 2017.
